While they were a little fiddly to initially pair, once I got them installed, it was magic. Digital unicorns flew out of my daughter's Tumblr feed at the speed of 30mbps, and she no longer things I'm a moron.
In other words, works awesome.
I was dumb and didn't read directions - you must plug into outlet (not a power strip) or the signal will degrade. I saw about a 70% degradation when I used power strips on both ends.
For the average home user, the only way to get networking from point A to your house to point B is either wired with cabling or use WiFi & bridging if the WiFi didn't extend far enough. When Powerline technology came out it added convenience of using existing power cabling but still was a little flaky and troublesome. But since then, Powerline has jumped leaps and bounds since and is much more reliable & faster.
When it came time to buy originally back in July 2012, I put a lot of research into looking into the latest powerline solution for my home. I wanted something with high performance and the current version of "high performance Powerline devices" allows 500Mbps transfer rate. Even still, I was having trouble selecting which manufacturer to go with (Belkin, Cisco, Netgear, etc). After my homework (and despite Netgear's horrible sales support), I ended up with the NETGEAR Powerline 500Mbps Nano Adapter - Starter Kit (XAVB5101).
Despite the insane price point (currently $87.99 on Amazon - 12/13/2013; I bought these for $108 back in July 2012), the Netgear adapters worked wonderfully in my home.Read more ›
UPDATE: 5/5/16 STILL WORKING LIKE A CHAMP!
First of all, the device is advertised as as providing data rates at "up to 500 Mbps". Now I am always cautious whenever I see "up to" in advertising claims. Literally, this means that in a best case scenario it is capable of transmitting data at 500Mbps. However when you connect an Ethernet device to one of these adapters the link speed is only 100Mbps. So how is it possible to transmit "up to 500Mbps" when the physical layer Ethernet port (PHY) is a 100Mbps device? So right away my personal opinion is that the claims are totally fraudulent. If the PHY connected at 1,000Mbs there would at least be the possibility of achieving a 500Mbps transfer rate between these two devices. If there were an asterisk next to the claim and the fine print read something like "Total combined data rate of 500Mbps possible with x number of powerline adapters on the same network." That would tell me that 500Mbps is not between two adapters, but is the total network capacity. However I found no such information on the packaging.
Nonetheless, I setup my transmission tester with a maximum data rate of 100Mbps since that all these powerline adapters are technically able of providing between any two units.
How the RFC2544 test works is that it will start with a specified frame size and transmit data between the two components of the test system at a low data rate, increasing the data rate until errors are detected.Read more ›
